In October 2017, the IAM started offering a free college program as a Machinist benefit, allowing IAM members and their families to earn an associate’s degree from Ohio’s Eastern Gateway Community College in various educational tracks. Now, the IAM has grown its free college program also to include Franklin University.

The IAM’s free college program covers the costs of tuition, fees, books and any amount not covered by federal or employer education grants. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old, with a high school diploma or a GED equivalent and be part of the Machinists Union family.
